There’s An Intriguing Airplane Boneyard In Arizona That You Need To Visit
Arizona is well-known as a snowbird paradise—for both the flying and biped kind—because of the mild winters and sunny days that are great for winter food supply and aging joints. But did you know our state is also the perfect retirement home for another flying creature? Well, less of a creature and more of a contraption.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
Tours of the boneyard are available on weekdays from the Pima Air and Space Museum, located at 6000 East Valencia Road in Tucson. Tickets cost $7 ($4 for children 12 and under). Additional information can be found on their website, pimaair.org.
